What was that? You saw and heard right. Indeed behind the Indian saree of late is the trending and stylistic ‘boat version’ of the blouse. So very popular and liked by a wide audience of fashion loving women, the boat blouse is the ‘in-thing’ of today. From fashion divas to corporate working women, style gurus to the modern housewives, the boat neck design seems to be the best thing that could have happened of late. (Mind you the next fashion avatar could have similar rave reviews if it jelled with the vast populace of fashion-followers).
The blouse that goes with the saree has a neck to cater, a fastening at front or back, plain to being adorned with jazzy designs, being that complete fit that goes well with what it accompanies. The neck starts from front, circles from front and reaches back to where it started from. In the process it creates different shapes from simple round when unobstructed in the travel to different shapes when obstructed at two points opposite to each other, like semi circular, U shaped V shaped, the mandarin Chinese, this that and now the boat shaped one.
So what is the boat shape?
It is having a concave or curving inward shape like a boat. The neck of the blouse is boat shaped at front and back. What is special one may ask? Well if one were to see a person wearing something with a boat neck it would make one realize it is the face above the neck that automatically becomes the focus of attention. It is a flattering feeling that evokes plenty of mixed emotions mostly pleasant of course. Which woman would not like that?
The boat neck is a shape that properly designed brings out elegance and a curiosity about the face it encloses in a strange unexplainable way, like wanting to know more. But who’s bothered about the reasons, the effect is what matters. And the best part of it is, that on an average Indian women have discovered that the shape does well for them, showing them in good light. No wonder, it has been a hit the time it got introduced to the market and the excitement has not died down as yet.
